Educational Opportunities: Landscape Design School

LANDSCAPE DESIGN SCHOOLS

Overview

Helping members become accomplished landscape designers.

The Landscape Design Study Courses offer a series of  four 10-hour courses. The courses cover the history of landscape design as well as instruction from landscape architects in a variety of design techniques used  in home and municipal settings.

The curriculum covers a wide range of subjects: from landscape design history to landscape architecture in the year 2000 and beyond. Since its founding in 1958, professional instructors have maintained the high standards originally incorporated in the study program. Also offered are many optional programs, such as conferences, symposia and tours. Students acquire the tools for making their own gardens more beautiful and easier to maintain. Many students have been motivated to serve in political decision-making areas where awareness of the impact of a well-designed landscape can enhance the beauty and enjoyment of life in the public arena.
